The 21st annual Penticton Dragon Boat Festival will be held on September 10 & 11, 2022.

Held over two days on the second weekend in September, the racing happens on Skaha Lake in beautiful, sunny, Penticton, British Columbia, Canada.

Our event may look a little different this year, but we are committed to offering paddlers a well-run event with fair, fun and competitive racing.

Our vendors market, food trucks and beverage garden will be back. Plus the best festival site in BC — a sandy beach and a race that’s visible for the entire race course — and a large grassy area under the trees for team tents.

Come to Penticton and Train!
Out of town teams registered before the Early Bird Deadline for the PDBF
are invited to come up and train for free using our boats and equipment
any weekend throughout the Summer.
